“I’ve played in the band for over 30 years, many of them as principal flutist, and have served on the board. I love the challenge of learning new music, the camaraderie of playing with talented musicians, and the satisfaction of seeing a concert come together with a powerful ensemble sound. Seeing the audiences’ appreciation of our music gives me joy.”

“Attending a performance by the First State Symphonic Band is a delight to the senses. The talent of these local musicians is undeniable. Their music is beautiful and diverse and has audiences of all ages smiling and toe-tapping. I look forward every year to their Christmas and spring concerts, as well as their music in the parks programs.”
